101: The Sticking Plaster Budget

Philip Hammond unveils what’s almost certainly his last Budget, and manages to find that tattered old tax cut rabbit in his hat. We look at how he’s accidentally managed to get Labour to endorse a tax cut for the richest, and covered up the fact he’s got almost nothing to announce.
